Went to a braai done by an Irishman. Never knew pork sausages to could turn so black, so quickly. But they were strangely tasty come dinner time. Perhaps it was the beer.

Blood sausages are delicious. The English have a black one that is so flippen lekker.

:lol: No, they were lovely and pink until they were launched onto the grill that had volcanic temperatures.

Delicious. The best I ever had was at a French restaurant in London. But never tried them on a braai.

Neither have I. Weekend culinary experiment booked in.

(Fyi, we call it black pudding)

There's also white pudding which is basically the same, without the blood

When you cook your meat over an open flame or very high temperatures, the proteins can develop heterocyclic amines (HCAs) as well as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

In short, these chemicals can change the DNA of a person and in the process, increases the risk of cancer development. If you have to use the BBQ, close the lid and use it as an oven. You’ll get the same smoky taste, minus all the bad stuff

Well then, I guess that doesn't apply to us?

I'll tell my mates in the UK to take necessary precautions. Mind you, they normally BBQ with a lid on to stop the rain from getting in .

That's probably why they have no color in their skin. And they drink tea ffs.

My doc is filling my mind with this stuff currently.

There's a study that claims that every time you breath you inhale a certain amount of toxins that causes lung cancer. You should stop breathing Sards then there will be more meat for us who don't give a fuck.

Bought one of these:

The build quality seems quite high, 25% discount. I like that I can raise and lower the coals, thus avoiding the above mentioned Irish sausage problem. Also can add and rearrange the coals without taking up the grill.

Any tips for keeping the smoke levels down? Oil / fat obviously a cause but wondered if there's anything else that can be done. It's on the roof and my neighbours are kopping some smoke in their houses.

Friday night is steak night.
We went in the afternoon to get the steak for our dinner and the missus showed me the size steak I could eat. I said I would rather die happy

I am planning to smoke chicken breast today. A nice spicy rub and oak barrel smoke chips....I know....would prefer a different wood chip but that was all that is available.....Got the rub ingredients. Just need to smoke it for an hour and a quarter at 100'C....

Plan is for some smoked chicken breast on Low GI wholewheat bread with salad from the garden for sammies this week coming.

Regards the pic above...where is the exhaust vent to make it a smoker

:lol: Oops. In that case you should use the microwave instead. Wood and coals give off smoke when you set fire to them.

Best option is to knock on the neighbours door and suggest they take in their washing and close their windows.
Then invite them over to sample some wares. They won't ever moan again. :thumbup:

I have an arrangement to let them know, but this is a very tight area, especially for them. Once the smoke is in, it stays. :lol:

Tastes one hell of a lot better than plain chicken...no culture dude...whats the point in settling for less when with the minimum amount of effort you can tantalise your taste buds...at my age I eat less but prefer to eat a little bit of something enjoyable.

I threw what I thought to be a nice steak on the coals, but it was horrifically tough and my teeth still hurt x(

So sick of shit beef here.

Even a Spur steak would taste like heaven.

Looks like I'll have to stick to chicken, pork and goat.

Never understood chicken & prawn skewers, by the time the chicken is cooked the prawns are cooked to death.

Well medium rare leaning towards rare if that's what you mean. Certainly not anything over that.
